YCF Annual Conference 2022
Attending this event?
This year, we focus on the business essentials which are crucial to a young company’s ability to survive and grow.  Over the lifespan of a business, founders have a number of critical decisions to make.  Some of these, made early in the development of the company, have effects long into the future.  Founders starting out need to know the basics (and many founders start with little business experience), but getting the basics right is essential for future-proofing the company’s continuing progress.
Our speakers will be highlighting the issues which they consider basics in a number of different contexts – staffing, marketing, operations, and finance – and explaining how getting these right can accelerate a company’s development, and making the wrong call can create a legacy which takes a long time from which to recover.
